Nuclear medicine has revolutionized the way we detect, diagnose and treat patients with medical imaging for specialties ranging from oncology to pediatrics to cardiology. Nuclear medicine is unique, as it uses trace amounts of radioactive particles to help in its imaging processes. Radiation exposure stays within safe limits, about the same if a patient were receiving an X-ray.
At Citizens Specialty Hospital department of Nuclear Medicine is headed by Dr Mohan Roop, our expert nuclear medicine specialist use innovative procedures and tests which help to detect irregularities much earlier in the stage of the disease as compared to conventional diagnostic imaging. They also help us extrapolate information about a patient’s condition that often eliminates the need for more costly diagnostic tests or even surgery.
